Contrast is key – following this maxim, Zaha Hadid Design created a collection of exceptional design objects which are in total harmony with the Iraqi-British architect’s own design principles: free form, naturally fluid design and extravagant style. The Strip Collection has a sculptural feel to it. A dynamic vase body in white and gold emerges from a rigid square that functions as a base, reaching skyward like a tall building before coming to rest in a perfect round opening.
Statement of the jury
The collection features flowing lines whose symmetry is seemingly broken by equally fluid divergences highlighted in gold, reflecting architectural forms transformed into sculptural elements. Sinuous and yet symmetrical, the products are eye catching and, at the same time, aesthetically pleasing.
